characteristics: age, disability, combined grounds, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.

Much more is now known about the Equality Act in practice; amendments have been made to the Act itself (such as those made as a consequence of insurance premium and gender cases in the European Court of Justice) and statutory guidance to the Act has been produced. Case law on the new provisions is also starting to appear. This fully revised edition of Blackstone's Guide to the Equality Act 2010 covers all recent developments and clearly and concisely explains the intricacies of the
Equality Act. Combining the full text of the Act, as amended, with narrative from an expert team, the book is an invaluable resource for all who encounter the evolving legislation.

The Blackstone's Guide Series delivers concise and accessible books covering the latest legislative changes and amendments. Published soon after enactment, they offer expert commentary by leading names on the extent, scope, and effects of the legislation, plus a full copy of the Act itself. They offer a cost-effective solution to key information needs and are the perfect companion for any practitioner needing to get up to speed with the latest changes.
